Joe Neal's newest book a compilation of wonderful outdoor essays he has shared with birding friends by email in recent years

While reading a few of Joe Neal's birding essays about dawn today while wondering how many species of migrating and year-round resident birds were creating the euphony in the trees and thickets in our yard and the surrounding World Peace Wetland Prairie, I stopped to share a link for those who may want to read Joe's work, and also to mention that you too can attract more wildlife to your yard by encouraging native plants to grow to provide berries, seeds and insects.

Mendy Knott’s poetry is full of imagery and metaphor, thick with the juicy stuff of the senses. Part narrative,part song, these are poems about the physical body, the blood of sacrifice, an unforgettable communion of spirits—human and otherwise.

The Birdside Baptist
And Other Ornithological Mysteries
by Joseph C. Neal
In The Birdside Baptist, Joe Neal sees the world through a birder’s binoculars, but also through the eyes of an Arkansan who was brought up wearing shiny black shoes to five church services every week. These collected essays, originally written for fellow subscribers of a birders’ listserve, are reports from the field spanning eight years, from 2002 to 2010. Illustrated with Neal’s crisp photographs, he paints a rich landscape of plants, animals, and human history, including the struggle of a community to balance booming development and environmental stewardship.
